Who Is A Candidate For Invisalign?
Posted on 06/17/2021

Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontic treatment across the world with its bracketless and wire-free teeth straightening technology—but is Invisalign an appropriate orthodontic treatment for everyone? Here at Dr. Roy Gonzalez orthodontic office, it is our mission to provide excellent teen and adult orthodontic care at a low cost to the people of San Antonio, TX—which is why we offer Invisalign to our patients, but it’s important to understand exactly what Invisalign does and who it is most suited for. Check out our brief guide to find out if Invisalign or Invisalign teen is right for you or your child!

Why Invisalign?

Whether you want to straighten your teeth with Invisalign or if you are simply wondering which is the best orthodontic treatment for you, Dr. Roy Gonzalez can help you figure out which treatment is the best for your teeth and your budget. There are many advantages to Invisalign that make it a popular teen and adult orthodontic treatment; here are just a few reasons why our patients choose Invisalign:

  • Convenient, removable, and easy to take care of.
  • Made of a nearly invisible clear plastic polymer
  • Works faster than metal braces (typically in under 18 months)
  • Allows you to be confident in your smile even while you are straightening your teeth
  • No fussing with rubber bands or unseemly braces wires

Is Invisalign Right For You?

While Invisalign and Invisalign Teen have many advantages, there are some patients for whom Invisalign is not the best option. Patients with severely misaligned teeth or malocclusions often cannot be treated with Invisalign due to the difficult maneuvers that it would take to get their teeth straight. For this reason, Invisalign is a better teen and adult orthodontic treatment for patients with mild to moderately misaligned teeth. Another reason that some patients prefer metal braces or Invisalign is because of their cost. Metal braces tend to be more affordable than Invisalign and are more accommodating to some patients’ budgets. Whichever orthodontic treatment you choose, Dr. Gonzalez will have your teeth straight before you know it!
